Lovely. Stairs were difficult but other than that lovely. Glenn from Whitby (30 July 2017)
We had a lovely holiday in acorn cottage and would highly recommend it! Hannah (28 July 2017)
Very nice cottage with useful amenities and nice back garden for our dogs. Would definitely stay again. Customer 3 from Bedlington (16 July 2017)
This cottage has a lovely big bathroom with a roll top bath and excellent shower. Nice bedroom with a comfortable bed. Could perhaps have more kitchen/cooking equipment eg. A bowl to use in the microwave, another lidded pan, but we were there for a fortnight, on a shorter break might not notice so much. The local pubs were very friendly with good pub food & we liked the deli & tea rooms. We felt we had easy access to lots of places for sightseeing. We appreciated being able to take our cat and really enjoyed the holiday. Linda from Newcastle Upon Tyne (14 July 2017)
Stunning little cottage. Perfect base for exploring the area. The cottage is well done out, exactly as you would expect from the photos and description. Lovely garden, take care on the steps if you are nervous like I am. Really comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, extremely usable kitchen and comfortable living area. Again, superb cottage. The only thing I could possibly think of was somewhere to hang a jacket, which wasn't a problem because we chose the hotest weekend of the year so far! Dan from Cheltenham (19 June 2017)
An excellent spot for visiting the derbyshire dales. The property is small but ideal for a couple. David from Watford (09 June 2017)
We had a great time here the cottage and village were great. Very cosy and homely. Some areas were a bit worn - the bedroom carpet really needed a good clean and wardrobe was falling apart at the back. Also they needed to update local brochures and leaflets for local amenities as most were out of date. These things did not affect our short stay holiday. Stuart from Bury St Edmunds (26 May 2017)
The garden needs a lot of work not at all pleasant to sit in, also a handrail is needed on the stairs in the cottage. Maria from Preston (22 May 2017)
This is a small ex miners cottage. Well appointed with a king sized comfortable bed, separate excellent shower and free standing bath. In the lounge there is a large tv with skytv freeview and an x box which doubles as dvd player, small dining table and a sofa. The wi-fi is excellent. . however the stairs are dangerous, very steep with a right angled bend, wooden (so slippy). accessing the bathroom from the bedroom is another right angled twist on the top step, potentially lethal at night. It has no banister to assist ascent/descent, indeed it is open plan, and if you fell you could end up falling into the kitchen appliances. Outside the garden is accessible up steep steps which are mentioned but no mention of the inside stairs. I must note that the outside patio had a dog turd on it which had not been cleaned up before we arrived, also the bath outflow pipe was disconnected to the rear of the bath and we had to reconnect urgently to avoid a serious flood. On examination, the bath is not fixed to the floor and can easily be moved, the probable cause of the disconnection. Overall, we did enjoy our stay, this is a well decorated cottage but we would only recommend to fully mobile guests, we feel that some warning should be made to less able guests. parking is on the road outside, pulling tight to the wall across and when we stayed we were able to place the car opposite the door. . bonsall is a lovely village to stay and the local pub, the kings head has reasonably priced excellent food and is very welcoming. There are numerous walks from the village, well sign posted and providing wonderful views. Jonathan from Barnsley (19 May 2017)
Fantastic cottage, very homely and comfortable with the bathroom particularly well done. Bonsall is a brilliant location for exploring the peak district with a range of walks and attractions in close proximity. . village is blessed with 2 fantastic dog-friendly pubs both serving great ale and good food. . would love to come back again Graham from Cambridge (15 May 2017)
Amazing cottage, lovely accommodation and very comfortable. Very central to lots of attractions and walks. Mark from Cambridge (28 April 2017)
We had a fabulous stay at acorn cottage, the village has enough amenities, the local pub was so welcoming. There have been a few quotes regarding the stairs in the property, they are steep but what you potentially would expect in a period property. Toni from Nottingham (17 April 2017)
We loved the cottage, however, the very poor/uncomfortable pillows made sleeping difficult. also, kitchen cooking items very limited if you wanted to actually have a cooked breakfast etc. Pauline from Bedford (05 March 2017)
Lovely little cottage, ideal for 2 and a dog. Lots of great walks from the door and two pubs in the village made it easy to not have to use the car all weekend. We found people in the village very friendly and would definitely go back again. . on a down side we did have an unfortunate problem with the boiler breaking down but the caretaker and owners could not have been more helpful. Elizabeth from Nuneaton (27 February 2017)
Loved the cottage great for dogs had a fantastic time will definitely go back Jill from Leeds (24 February 2017)
Lovely place. Sofa not comfortable at all. Bed very comfortable but crippling in the morning! same as last year... too soft a mattress. Not enough to put me off. Lovely warm nights with the stove. Worth the money - great surroundings. Thanks again. Michael (19 February 2017)
A beautiful cottage set in a beautiful village location. The cottage is decorated to a high standard, the bed is extremely comfortable, the free standing bath and walk in shower is lovely and the log burner in the living room makes it extra cosy at night. Easy access by car to local attractions and shops. Highly recommend staying at acorn cottage! Christie from West Midlands (17 February 2017)
Had a lovely 2 week break. me, my husband and 2 dogs. was home from home. cottage was lovely, cosy, wifi. Couldn't have asked for a better location. close to matlock. Everything just a drive away. local shop stocked most things. buses ran frequently , bus stop 2 mins away. would definitely book again. Margaret from Merseyside (13 February 2017)
Stayed jan 2017. Very cosy cottage.nice and warm/comfortable..great location..be careful of stairs inside..garden steps beware bit slippery. No companion set for the log fire..which is a must. Wendy from Ripley Derbyshire (24 January 2017)
Great weekend Angela from Rotherham (16 January 2017)
The cottage was in a great location for walking with a number of walks right from the front door. Really comfy bed and fabulous bathroom. Cottage is dog friendly but if yours is adventurous like ours I would watch garden as access to next door possible. Local pub very friendly, dog and muddy walkers welcome and great food, would definitely stay again Neil from Winchester (04 January 2017)
A lovely cottage in a quaint and friendly village. Already booked to stay again. Darren from Lancaster (08 December 2016)
Loved acorn cottage,the log burner and the bath!the stairs were very narrow and steep so care needs to be taken.would love to stay again. Heather from Keisby (04 December 2016)
This was a cosy little cottage, perfect for exploring the peak district. Rebekah, the house keeper was very helpful in trouble shooting a problem with the cooker. Aspects we particularly liked in the house were the bathroom and the log burner. There are two pubs and a local shop within easy walking distance. The only downside was the speed of the wi-fi but I imagine that is a village-wide thing! Nicki from Newport (05 November 2016)
Lovely cottage ,good location ,comfortable bed .stairs to bedroom care needed ,nice shower . outside space steps to upper garden need handrail and maybe two new garden chairs ,lower courtyard to damp and moss filled ( due to lack of sunlight ) to enjoy . Karen from Kings Lynn (16 September 2016)
Lovely cottage in a very pretty village location. the only downside was the steps to the garden, we felt very unsafe and did not use it and the staircase in the cottage took some getting use to. but overall very nice and a great location. Joanne from Norwich (09 September 2016)
The cottage is lovely. Its been done to a high standard and has a fantastic bathroom. It was very clean through out and very comfortable. My only issue which is very small is they need more cooking equipment. Lisa from Lincoln (02 September 2016)
Loved it James from Royston (19 August 2016)
A place that felt like home as soon as you walked in. Very comfortable and furnished to a high standard. Village was also very friendly. Mark from Yarm (12 August 2016)
The cottage was a lovely retreat. Just watch the stairs in and out the property if your not a very person. Susanna from Arnold. Nottingham (05 August 2016)
Lovely cottage. Needs another sofa. Also garden not very user friendly - for dogs or humans Jane from Rugby (31 July 2016)
Overall this was a fantastic break and the cottage was lovely the location couldn't have been better there are definitely more pros than cons the pros are the comfort of the cottage especially the bed best one i've slept in and the bathroom is fantastic gorgeous big bath and my hubby liked the large t.v. Which unfortunately you don't get in a lot of cottages the cons are the staircase which is extremely steep and I realize there is not much which can be done about that but after reading previous reviews it is an issue I felt some kind of handrail on the left hand side when descending would be an advantage my husband is a lot more agile than me but found it difficult with the steps being wooden it was even more precarious the only other thing was the lack of cooking utensils ie pans etc we did quite a bit of cooking and felt the cottage would benefit from new ones especially a bigger frying pan but other than that fantastic. Steve from Yorkshire (15 July 2016)
Great little cottage situated in a quiet village with easy access to all sort of walks. very dog friendly. Jackie from Rye (08 July 2016)
Restricted ground floor headroom for those over six foot. . tricky step at top of stair. Handrail would help. Otherwise very comfortable and clean. . from our own experience suggest owners spend a week end in cottage. . some basic items missing ie teapot, sugar bowl, soap rack next to bath. David from Ryton (01 July 2016)
It is a beautiful little cottage, just beware of the stairs and outside steps, no handrails on either and be careful going from bathroom to bedroom. Grass needed cutting and deck chair was broken but overall we had a lovely stay and did get used to the quirkiness of the cottage. The village was lovely, the locals were friendly and the food in the local pub was devine. Doreen from Doncaster (24 June 2016)
The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable the only drawback being the stairs to the upper floor. They were narrow, steep and being bare boards, slippery. . there was also no hand rail so climbing them and descending again was quite a worrying experience. . I would happily stay at acorn cottage again but not with the stairs as thy are. Joan from Cheslyn Hay, Walsall. (27 May 2016)
A lovely cottage, located for easy access to bakewell, matlock and chatsworth. Just right for a break away for two - although watch the ground floor ceilings as for a 6'5" tall chap they were only just comfortable! very well appointed and excellent value for money. Sarah from Eye, Suffolk (01 May 2016)
The cottage was well equipped and a perfect base for our holiday. It was lovely to be able to come back every evening and relax in front of the woodburner. Would highly recommend. Clare from Sturminster Newton (29 April 2016)
Beautiful cottage furnished to a very high standard. Wonderful stay will definitely go back Rose from Northampton (25 April 2016)
We had a perfect break in this adorable cottage! beautifully and tastefully decorated and has everything you need. Nice touches with milk left in fridge and comfy dressing gowns :-). very peaceful location. Would definitely stay again!. only criticism would be that the stairs are slippery as they are not carpeted so need to take care! Lianne from Maidstone (31 March 2016)
Excellent cottage, very clean, lovely soft dressing gowns and towels that smelt lovely. In a fab location with a lovely pub 2minute walk from the cottage. only negatives that we have of the cottage are the fridge is tiny and wouldn't be suitable if you was stayin for a week plus it was alittle noisy. Could do with an iron and ironin board and a few more coat hangers in wardrobe as there was only 3 and a few more kitchen utensils. Other than that we had a fantastic weekend and would definitely recommend it. Kym from Worksop (21 March 2016)
Lovely cottage Emily from London (03 March 2016)
Beautiful cottage in a picturesque location. Well equipped for wall your needs. Fantastic !! Confirmed Guest (19 February 2016)
An enjoyable short stay in derbyshire, our first visit, unfortunately february not the best idea. Cottage very comfortable with every amenity thought of including a beautiful bathroom. My only suggestion would be a handrail as staircase is steep and a bit slippy. Peter from Banstead (12 February 2016)
The cottage has been beautifully renovated to a high standard. it has real wow factor. The location is beautiful albeit it is on a deceptively busy road . it is a dog friendly cottage however the stairs in this property are precarious at best. They are steep and slippy and my dog couldn't get up and down. I think older persons should avoid this cottage. Owners were friendly and fixed small issues immediately. Overall a top quality cottage..but beware of the stairs. Pete from Lincoln (04 February 2016)
Property is nice,but areas of refurb were left unfinished like paint work in bathroom. Although sofa was a replacement it is still uncomfy and we spent most of week on the floor watching tv. The fridge is very small yet the cooker is fantastic . the bed issue raised by many had not been fixed, yet I managed to tighten the bed with an ikea key . the cleaning wasn't very thorough with some con webs around and the bedroom carpet could do with a clean. It's a shame because the location was perfect and the pictures promise so much. Paul from Leicester (30 January 2016)
The cottage has been tastefully decorated, although some bits are starting to look a little tired, and is in a beautiful location. The only two things that were slightly disappointing was the size of the fridge (which for a weeks stay is not big enough) and the squeaky /creaky bed. We had a slight problem with the boiler on boxing day but this was fixed is less than half an hour, fantastic service. We would definitely recommend. Charlotte from Ramsgate (28 December 2015)
Lovely place to stay and an excellent location. . the bathroom was fantastic and plenty of space in all rooms….definitely worth a second visit maybe in the spring…. there are a few things to watch for a squeaky bed and a few more provisions on arrival along with a few more logs in winter for the fire. Caution on the stairs especially going from the bedroom to the bathroom….it would be nice to leave a light on for arrivals in the dark.. really looking forward to my next visit. Andy from Stevenage (13 December 2015)
We enjoyed our stay, however the living area of the property really was not up to scratch which is such a shame, as the kitchen/ bathroom are lovely, but the quality of the lounge frankly lets this property down, the tiny sofa was very uncomfortable my wife ended up sitting on the floor and the lounge is swallowed up by the large tv perched on the stand which is way to small the effect is the tv looks even bigger, the whole lounge area is badly set out and poorly furnished, looks like the owners ran out of funds to be blunt. The lounge if set out better would easily take a decent sofa and separate chair. The curtain pole was bent it curved down around 6 to 7 inches and look ridiculous. Poor attention to detail. Karl from Ampthill (08 November 2015)
What a beautiful cottage and place to stay, friendly helpful locals, would love to go again soon! Victoria from Derby (01 November 2015)
Two fundamental basics lacking:. a comfortable sofa or chair. A comfortable bed. A sore bum or a sore back - that was the question throughout!. . minor quibbles: . some kitchen utensils lacking;. too frisky smoke alarms making cooking a pain;. inadequate thermostat instructions;. kitchen spotlights not functioning and a couple of bulbs out with no replacements available;. cobwebs;. and a painfully slow wifi connection. . together made for an uncomfortable stay. Tim from Feering, Essex (30 October 2015)
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. very clean and well kept, exactly what it says on the tin. agree with others comments re sofa, this beautiful cottage would benefit highly from an update to the sofa - but is comfy enough. bathroom is stunning and the bed is super comfy, best sleep ever if you can ignore the slight squeak!! would absolutely recommend and come back for another stay! Susan from Derby (16 October 2015)
We had a fabulous time and even tho the weather changed we still found plenty to do. Would recommend afternoon tea at the fountains and evening meal at the local kings head. . . the cottage was very cosy however the stairs are a little steep, the settee could be bigger - but overall a very charming cottage and would recommend to friends and family. Tina from Cleethorpes (09 October 2015)
Lovely cottage but parking was sometimes an issue and a rail on the outside steps would be useful. Julie from Louth (25 September 2015)
Had a lovely holiday, lovely cottage, would stay again and recommend to friends and family Suesan from Havent Hampshire (18 September 2015)
We stayed in acorn cottage with our two dogs, it was an ideal location for our walking break with plenty of places to visit nearby. Considering it was a dog friendly cottage it was unbelievably clean with no sign of any dog hair at all, there was even a jar of dog treats in the kitchen which we thought was a lovely touch. The bathroom is amazing and the bed was one of the most comfortable i've ever slept in, I had the best sleeps ever during our stay (although the daily hikes with the dogs may have helped). we would definitely stay there again, great value for money. Dan from Chatham, Kent (30 August 2015)
A fantastic little cottage, fitted to a very high standard. A perfect base of operations from which to explore the peak district national park. We will definitely be back! Paul from Peterborough (17 July 2015)
Great location & loved the garden. beautiful bathroom. really comfortable cottage. people in the town were very friendly. Jackie from Beckley (10 July 2015)
The most beautiful cottage, in a stunning village the locals made us feel so welcome! the cottage is the height of luxury and conform, immaculately clean and cosy and leanne was fantastic when we had any questions. Absolute 10* rating!! cant wait to book again Tracey from Sheffield (21 June 2015)
Acorn cottage is a darling little ' bolt hole' for two , the garden above the roof tops an added bonus ! the whole cottage tastefully renovated with a glorious bathroom. Just one tiny critisism , it does need a larger sofa, presently only just enough room for two ! . bonsall is a wonderful village with lovely walks heading in all directions and yet not far from the main tourist stops. Debbie from Norwich (19 June 2015)
We had a very relaxing stay at acorn cottage, it was well equipped with all the essentials and extremely comfortable. Deborah from Chester (05 June 2015)
A beautiful cottage that has been renovated to a high standard. The cottage was immaculate. the bathroom was amazing pure luxury. the owner also kindly provided milk, coffee and biscuits. the only down side in my opinion was the sofa, which was quite small and low to the ground. . a wonderful cottage that I would highly recommend. Jacey from Nottingham (31 May 2015)
